It's not the Republican Party that should fear illegal immigration

Speaker John Boehner seems to have momentarily found the rudiments of a backbone as of late. Greg Sargent of the Washington Post has called the passage of Obama's $3.7 billion in aid to Central American wet backs as a test of Boehner's leadership as if the Speaker was elected by the Republican majority to cajole them into fulfilling Obama's every want. As of yet Boehner has resisted his natural impulse to to buckle but as I said it may be momentary. If Boehner shares the Republican's ambition of regaining the Senate angering its base just months before an election is an odd way of going about it. Let the Democrats anger their base.
If Boehner does assent to this public shakedown rest assured the landscape will be cluttered with more or less permanent refugee camps replete with Enfamil and contraceptives on demand and rape counseling centers. They will be refilled with a ready supple of illegals as quickly as the populations are dispersed.
Who comprises this horde that the public has heard so much about but has strangely never seen? They may not be photographed or spoken to by the press or congressmen, they are allowed to fly public airlines without identification, something Americans citizens may not, and they have for sometime been dispersed throughout the country at taxpayer expense. All this secrecy invites suspicion. How old is the typical illegal? What country of origin? Have they been screened for gang membership and communicable diseases? By whom? When Glenn Beck brings his next truckload of food, water, teddy bears and soccer balls he may want to pack some razor blades. Even some Grecian Formula!
“Some of them have had gray hair and they’re telling you that they’re 17 years old and they have no documentation,” Jamie Cerulli, the Lynn mayor’s chief of staff, tells NRO. “If my children went to the public schools, I’d be very uncomfortable with all of these unaccompanied minors [that] are placed in the ninth grade.”
Follow this link to see two very adult looking children. Federal policy prohibits city officials from inquiring into any child’s immigration or citizenship status and background, so the public is at the mercy of middle aged con men. If, as we are told, this illegal influx has been ramping up for the past two years why have deportations declined? When the illegals are given comfortable housing, food stamps, and Obama phones will they dutifully show up for their deportation hearings?

Washington Republican insiders caution that opposing this round of backdoor amnesty will put the party in extreme risk. These are the same clever folks who banned the incandescent light bulb. Fear the moment and surrender because in the long run we are all dead. I contend it is not the Republicans who should fear being on the wrong side of history it is black Americans. The relationship between the black community and the Democratic Party has traditionally been all about stroking and hand holding; kissing and ass kissing. The black base seems to need constant assurance that it is the one true love. It's subtle but that assurance has not been forthcoming lately as the party has sought to make the country into the ideal habitat for white, single, and reasonable affluent white women, Muslims both traditional and radical, and, solely because of their high birth rate, Hispanics.
My jaw dropped when I saw Jesse Jackson appearing on Greta Van Susteran's show. He did not live up to his billing "Jesse Jackson slams Obama on his immigration policy". In fact he was extremely gentle in his criticism of Obama and he himself was uncharacteristically diffident, but it left me wondering who solicited whom? Could Jackson have made the Fox News organization aware that he would be available for a short interview? He can be forgiven for not being a regular Van Susteran viewer. Hell, I can hardly stand to watch it myself. Poor preparation and a over reliance on John Bolton and Donald Trump invites tedium and channel surfing. Why did Jackson want to talk to the Fox audience? He may not be the greatest mind of the 21st century but he is smart enough to read the Nielson ratings.
In any event, while black members of congress have been dutifully goose stepping to whatever tune the White House may call one senses that the base is getting more restive by the hour. It is not down with amnesty in any shape or form. Aside from more food stamps to better endure the hardships inflicted upon them by the first black president this demographic has gone backward for the last 6 years by an objective index. They have not, as they hoped, fared better than whites under Obama they have done worse. That reality is setting in and the very idea of playing second fiddle to the Americans from across the border is manifestly unendurable. It almost feels like treason.
Commissioner Peter Kirsanow chairman of the US Commission on Civil Rights has written the Congressional Black Caucus urging the CBC to reject amnesty and to "oppose any legislation that would grant any form of work authorization to illegal aliens" and "oppose legislation that would increase the overall number of guest workers admitted to the U.S. each year."
Black congressmen heading home for the summer recess may find themselves walking into a buzz saw just as Republicans did in 2010. Remembering the fate of Eric Cantor should serve them well. Not many if any will lose office, but they will get an earful and some will be singing a different tune when they return.
